Bobby Flay made a similar cocktail that looked good and refreshing. He used hibiscus zinger tea but I went with Celestial’s Mixed Berry Zinger. This was fantastic due to all the fresh fruit paired with the tea and tequila. It wasn’t overly sweet and drinks like a lightly sweetened tea or margarita.

4 cocktails:
10 oz of blanco tequila
2 oz orange liquor
2 cups of Herbal tea
1 orange
1 lime
1 lemon
Fresh pineapple
Fresh mint
Lemon lime soda or seltzer

Take your lime, lemon and orange and slice a few slices and put them in a pitcher. Juice the remaining into the same pitcher. Make a batch of tea using 2 cups of boiling water and two tea bags. Steep for 6 mins or until the desired intensity. Ice the tea to cool it down and slightly dilute. Add your tequila and stir in the pitcher mashing up your fruit. We were going to top with seltzer but didn’t have room so we went plain.

Definitely made our rotation and I will experiment with different teas and liquors. Enjoy responsibly.
